Comprehensive pressure tests have been carried out on thick-walled, closed-ended cylinders made from a mild steel and a hardened and tempered steel, the maximum pressure reached being 94,000 lb/in.2 The complete theoretical behavior of the cylinders is computed from shear stress-strain data obtained from torsion tests and is shown to be in very close agreement with the experimental results. In addition, a method is given for deriving the large strain behavior of the cylinders from tension test data. When compared with the experimental results this approach gives larger errors, the theoretical values of pressure being consistently high. Finally, ultimate pressures have been calculated from two empirical expressions.
